Your Beautiful Self layout by Wendy KesslerSupplies used are all Close to My Heart: White Daisy Cardstock, Paper Fundamentals Adventure, Your Beautiful Self Stamp Set, Watercolor Paints, Watercolor Paper, Paintbrushes, Memento Ink, Ink Blot Stamp Set,  Ink (Pixie, Crystal Blue, and Gypsy).

Your Beautiful Self is one of my favorite stamp sets to use with Watercolor Paints.  I simply painted a sheet of Watercolor Paper with swipes of different colors.  Once it was dry I stamped the butterflies with Memento Ink.  Then I cut them out and added them to my layout.

Now “Hop” on over to Darlys Recker’s Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting ideas!
